Libraries, Information, Freedom and Children.
As life becomes more complex and knowledge more necessary for even the simplest kind of life, young people must have access to and knowledge of the tools that will enable them to function in society. Information is critical, and libraries, as purveyors of that information, need support, critical evaluation, and dedicated, committed staff. The educational role of the library involves not only the provision of information but also instructional programs teaching young people to be self-sufficient in obtaining, interpreting, and using that information.
